What does everyone think of the name Tamia Jayde for my baby girl? Pronounced Ta-mia. I want to go with something uncommon but not too different.

do you want her to do that her whole life?

Yes pronounced Ta-mee-a. The meaning is a hebrew name and is a form of Tamara which means "palm tree". It also means "heart" in Vietnamese. My husband heard the name and loved it. Its the only name we agree on so far.

I like it with the i pronounces ee like Tameea. A friend of mine used to say, "Yell the name out the back door a few times to see if it sounds good when they're in trouble!" LOL! I think it's a beautiful name.

I tried to look up what it means the closest I got was Tami which is a Japanese name meaning People. But it sounds like a lovely name Tamia Elwell. I suggest saying it over and over again so that you can see if when she's in the School yard kids can't tease her about her name. It could get shorten to Tami or mia (which is an Italian name meaning Mine). Good luck and what ever you choose will be lovely.
